campaign in boston on tuesday night. joining us on our news line. hi ginger, good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> bill: it was not a happy night there. the word got around pretty close that things were not going romney's way didn't it? >> it was pretty clear early points in the night that he wasn't going to win but there was sort of a group that held out hope in boston. but the crowd started to dwindle, the enthusiasm was gone really early. >> bill: what were some of the signs like virginia didn't immediately go or north carolina didn't immediately or florida or ohio? is that what people were looking for? >> yeah, you were looking for wins in any of those states. and even north carolina which sort of everyone had conceded at that point. they knew that -- the obama camp had conceded. they knew that romney was going to win north carolina. i think they called new hampshire before north carolina which was not a good sign for people hoping for a romney victory. >> bill: what were they saying now the ne

this election is not exactly what we expected to happen. >> going into boston that day we felt like we had a pretty darn good chance of winning. so as you can imagine, it was a bit of a shock when we didn't win. just the way these things go. >> cry me a river. >> bill: had a pretty darn good chance of winning. we didn't do our homework. we didn't know all of those people would come out and vote for obama. yeah because they didn't have any intelligence or ground organization. they ran a crappy, lousy campaign. but, of course, paul ryan ever in denial says don't read too much into obama's victory. >> i don't think so because they -- the house republicans. whether people intended or not we've got divided government. >> bill: he says obama didn't have any mandate because they still have the house of representatives. get out of here, dude. come on. president obama, what do you want, president obama won the popular vote, three and a half million. he won the electoral college by 126-vote margin. that's pretty substantia

in boston says obama 303. jim asher, actually says 313 for obama. scott bierman says my wife is 42 and never voted until today. my daughter is 19 and she's a first timer as well. we have three votes for obama so we're going to make it 332 obama. romney 206. carlos in maryland says my life partner, paul and i have already voted for obama. 303-235 is his prediction. >> you know, there is no nate silver lining to this thing. [ laughter ] these projections mean absolutely diddly if people listening at home right now do not get off their tails and go vote. you know, nate's predictions i take pretty seriously. i have for the last four years. we've been following this thing. a couple of days ago, he was at to 3. -- at 303. he's now at 314 for obama. with a 90% chance of winning. >> bill: 92% chance. >> with a little over 50% of the vote. those are all great things. but they don't mean anything. you know what happens on election day? today. if barack obama doesn't win because we didn't turn out the vote, then great.

in their underwear and fornicating in the stairwell. >> sounds like fun to me. >> stephanie: boston was fun. 34 minutes past the hour. >> the wilbur theatre stairwell will never be the same. >> stephanie: yikes. mark in >> sound the like you could use a little r and r. rum and ritalin. >> stephanie: it is "the stephanie miller show." welcome to it. 1-800-steph-12 toll free from anywhere. jim, who said grover norquist is an impediment to good governing and the only good thing about grover norquist is he's named after a character from "sesame street." >> big bird. >> stephanie: former bush strategist matthew dowd. [ applause ] by the way, here's grover now as we approach the fiscal cliff. >> a little confusing. one, of course, the commitment he made to the people of georgia was not to me. it was written commitment to the people of georgia. that he would go to washington to reduce government spending and reform government, not raise taxes. if he wants to change his mind to become a tax increaser so we don't have to reform
